    In my first couple of months in Prague I went to a music festival and was confused to hear festival goers in the campsite yelling “Hobnob!” at each other all through the night. For non-English people, hobnobs are a delicious type of biscuit found in English supermarkets. Still, I didn’t understand why Czech rockers were so passionately interested in them, but they certainly have good taste…

  2. Trey says:

    I was heading to the pub in Holesovice when a child zipped past riding a pig.

  3. Sara says:

    Like Trey, the weirdest thing I have ever seen in Prague is a woman walking her huge pig by my tram stop in Holesovice…

    Even though it seems ordinary now, the first time I walked past an authentic Christmas market, saw a huge vat of fish, saw a young girl hesitate at the edge then point at one of the fish, then see the shopkeeper scoop it up, slap it on a log, and proceed to hack its head off, right before the eyes of the still-smiling girl, I was gripped by the thought of ” what a weird place I’ve found myself in!”

  5. Danut Istrate says:

    A couple of weird things seen in my time here in Prague: a guy riding the tram outside eating a kebab and sitting on that piece of iron where trams usually connect together; a homeless guy in the tram throwing his shit on the floor; an old lady high on something that kept masturbating with both hands in the night tram. I would love to see La Sylphide, 11.11.2018 😀
